Course description

The Dynamic Duo: Change in Project Management

The reality is that all projects are change initiatives. According to research, 70% of change initiatives fail (Kotter, 2012). Traditional Project Management focuses heavily on process, sometimes at the expense of the human element. Conversely, Change Management needs the project process to provide the roadmap to follow for the change to be lasting. By coupling the tools of Project Management and Change Management, project managers are far more effective at managing the project, especially when addressing how people deal with the uncertainty and anxiety of change.

Participants will navigate the nuances of how to manage their projects so that initiatives lead to lasting change. By leveraging proven Change Management techniques supported by Project Management methodologies, learners will increase the likelihood of initiative sustainability (hence project success). This course is designed to provide participants with change management best practice models and the proven Project Management standard which focuses on five key areas (Initiating, Planning, Executing, Monitoring & Control, and Closing).

This 1-day course introduces main process concepts and proven practices from the Project Management Institute’s (PMI) five process groups; Initiating, Planning, Executing, Monitoring & Control, and Closing. Each topic is presented in a tell-show-do format providing participants with the opportunity to apply change management tools and techniques to their projects.
